    Wow I did not know that!

    Anyway and you guys can think want after I say this but the only reason I bought a liscense for vB is cause I seen how awesome it was on my "PIRATED VERSION" yes folks when I first started using vB its was with the intent to get away with a free copy that I see a lot on Kazaa btw. So while it is bad that I did that at first there is 85 dollars that JS would never have seen if it wasn't for piracy, and another 160 when I renew. And I'm sure I'm not the only one with a story like this, so in my opinion piracy has it's good side.

        Unfortunatly pressplay hasnt gained neally as much producer support as iTunes. pressplay is awsome because it works with my walkman(network walkman), but itunes has alot more songs.

        they are not the same thing

        Though, as soon as itunes releases its windows clients(lets hope they dont crap it up like they do quicktime!), itll kill pressplay.

          If you knew that what you said was wrong, then why did you say it?

              Its the same with any sort of software, be it a Microsoft product or even a copy of vBulletin. Why should they get it for free?

              Register story was updated last night they settled for $2000 for the 12 year old.

              Consider using apples new service called iTunes completely legal and you still get your mp3's.

              Just my opnion.
              That's true Scott...but when VHS came out people were freaking out. Disney embraced the VHS and look where it got it....a whole ot of VHS and they kept the price to a reasonable amount that discouraged people from copying.

              I think the RIAA needs to take a page out of Disney's book and learn how to embrace technology and progressions...and rather not fight it

                When you buy a VHS you pay a royality tax on each unit.

                The artists and production companies also dont really care about time-delayed recording, they allow it. Its more the video "whores" who record everything and never pay a cent.

                          Uh,.. so. All they need is to sue a few hundred ( like they are doing ) and hope that'll scare the other "users" to stop what they are doing. It only takes a handful to take on the entire user base.

                          Its like a building; take away enough cornerstones ( the biggest downloaders/sharers ) and the entire thing comes tumbling down.

                          I've looked over everything you've posted and rightly have come to the conclusion that you are nothing more than a troll. ALL your posts have only been to RIAA threads.

                              If you see, thats why kazaa made the thing called "My Participation". That will make lot of people share. So even if they take down the "biggest" sharers it won'tmatter. Others will start sharing too.

                              I also haven't seen so much people scared, I got on kazaa today and its at 4 million users already, I downloaded some movies and it was faster than ever. The point is that the RIAA is no match. If they're, prove it.

                              Also, wtf you calling me a troll, well whatever that is. I joined here to tell about the stupid stuff RIAA is doing, and it seem you got a problem with me or something. You've proved iwas wrong in some stuff but not proved it that the RIAA is doing much.

                              If you're saying the RIAA is gonna scare people away, what do you know? are you Ms. Cleo or something to tell the future? One thing is being ovious, the RIAA is no match.

                              If you want to act smart, go act smart at school or where ever you study, I don't care if you know about computers -_-

                                Uh...It's a bit tough to take on the entire world. Especially when US laws mean nothing in other countries.

                                ..."only takes a handful.." - Tell that to the millions of other users that are doing this every day.

                                Nice try though.
